Iranian para-archer Zahra Nemati will be among the top athletes to watch at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.
Nemati is one of the most popular Paralympians from Iran. She took gold at the 2015 Asian Para Championships and qualified to compete at the Rio 2016 Olympics.
At London 2012, Nemati set a Paralympic record and won the gold medal in the women's individual recurve W1/W2.
She also claimed a bronze medal in the women's team recurve open.
Nemati’s success resulted in significant media coverage in Iran and inspired other women to take up para-sport, especially archery, Paralympic.org reported.
The para-archer is the flag-bearer of the Iranian delegation at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
